Description

Artist David Jolly was commissioned by the Memorial to attend the centenary Anzac Day Dawn Service at Gallipoli and create a series of paintings in response. Jolly works by photographing and recording places and events and then selecting moments and details that convey the larger story. In this case, he explored Gallipoli for several days, taking photographs, short film and sound recordings and drawing key sites on the Peninsula. His paintings present moments from before, during and after the Dawn Service on 25 April 2015. This painting shows the scene at the Lone Pine Cemetery the day after the service.
